Summary: This tackling the action/adventure genre such as The Chronicles of Narnia, Epic Movie is yet another edition to this terrible series of 'spoof' (and I use that term in the loosest sense) movies. The lack of talent it must take to create something so poor is frankly mind boggling and the sooner people stop paying to watch these things the better.
Excerpt: Wedge known for epic films (Ice Age), made an epic mistake here. First of all, where is the plot? I could consider a plot base (Bud by queen, facing the moon light to grow the forest again.), but where is the development? Is this epic-ness ? Miniature effect : Wedge projects his world as small well known creatures. Microscopic creatures don’t strike any good here. Hell bad as the script.
Excerpt: There is some truth to the saying "You can't judge a book by its cover," but at the same time, it doesn't always apply. In the case of Epic, I got exactly what I anticipated; a generic kids' fantasy film, with not an original bone its body. And yet (perhaps this is where that old saying comes into place), this is hardly a the trudge I thought it would be. Despite its many flaws, Epic is a fairly entertaining fantasy film.
Excerpt: sure the title is a bit misleading even though it deals with a bunch of tiny human like creatures that disguise themselves as dead animals and grasshoppers and fight a war to protect their lands. Enter the actual humans in which one girl gets shrunk down to size then the real adventure begins. The movie plays like a B-side to Alice in Wonderland crossed with any other lackluster animated venture.
Excerpt: When a movies title is literally Epic, It had better deliver on the promise that title implies. Epic works fine as an animated action/adventure film (a horribly maligned genre in my opinion,) but it never becomes as epic as its title promises. It keeps hinting at scale, it keeps implying that we are going to see something awe striking, but the third act is a little bit of an anticlimax. It’s a tiny bit disappointing. Other then that small complaint the movie works well.
Excerpt: Epic (2013) PG M.K. (Amanda Seyfried) has moved to the country to live with her father, Professor Bomba (Jason Sudeikis), after the death of her mother. Her father believes that the woods are inhabited by some sort of little beings that move too fast for humans to see. To her utter amazement, M.K. discovers that her father is right.
Summary: Atrocious. Just atrocious. Doesn't the fact that the directors got nominated for 5 Razzies over their careers (including one for Worst Screenplay for "Epic Movie") indicate how bad this is? Gosh... I don't even know why I watched this. I might have hoped there will be something funny, I guess. Some of their work was interesting at first - "Scary Movie" to be more precise.
